Being in the business of love we get so excited when Valentine’s day hits the calendar week. This year we are bringing you a versatile design that is ideal for an intimate dinner with that special someone and quick edits that turn this into a Valentine’s dinner with friends offering a special take away!
The holiday can be inundated with the often expected deep reds, bright fuchsia pinks and oh soo many boxes of chocolates. By using neutral tones like charcoal gray (shown below) a dinner setting is elevated feeling a little less commercial.
Blush pink accents add a touch of romance to soften a masculine gray palette. Include these fun desert plates labeled with LOVE from your local Chapters bookstore to complete the look and be sure to grab delicious French Maracons to complete the meal, trust us…chocolate does not compare.
Switch this up for a dinner with friends by swapping in a guest favour like this adorable book of love poems & letters – On Love. Your guests will enjoy flipping through these love stories later that evening or even as a morning after read with their breakfast. Give a guest favour that keep you and your fabulous soiree top of mind even days after the event is over.
To keep the décor romantic and whimsical we added in room accents that keep your guests engaged in the design while you are prepping a delicious meal. Display our absolute favourite visuals of Paris curated by Janelle McCulloch and keep it open to some of her most beautiful photography. The pages will take you on a stroll through Paris, one arrondissement at a time. Pick it up at Anthropologie.
The blush pink pomegranate scented candle is also incorporated in the table design which will create a sense of intimacy throughout the evening. You can find these and the lovely powder blue pitcher at Anthropologie as well, a great source for guest favours.
Glam up any design by adding your bubbly to the table. For valentine’s day we recommend Bottega Gold Prosecco.
